I like the idea of the app, and if it worked well I would give it 5 stars. We are doing a summer reading program through the library and they asked us to use this app. The problem is our books are not being counted sometimes and several times it even subtracted from our totals. The app still shows the books we have read, just the count is off. We aren't using the timer function so I don't know if that is also inaccurate.

Hi Heather, the Book Bank has been an area of concern for us too. We released an update to the app on July 14 that addresses and solves the issues you identified. We hope it works better for you and provides a great reading experience!
It keeps track of minutes correctly, but the app is not very user friendly. It requires multiple steps to find our current reading program and isn't letting us remove ourselves from old reading programs, so it makes it difficult to use.
This app is free and has no ads! Our library had setup a virtual reading program and we downloaded the app to log our books. When we first opened the app, there was a tutorial on how to use the app. It is well designed and has a simple format. If you want to add more than one reader you click the parent icon when you are registering. I added 3 readers and they can all log their books, and rate them. There's also a timeline and a section where you can log books for each reader as a parent.
